his clown for mocking mr. obama. how did the media react to this? >> on the panel this week rider and fox news contributor judy miller. jim bicker, fox news contributor allen combs. fox news watch is on right now. >>> the american people really don't know what this law is all about. i've tried to figure it out. you know, you've tried to figure it out. you've worked on it every day and the president has. they change the law on the run which is utterly unconstitutional. >> mark levine talking with fox's kneel cavuto earlier this week about the complexities about confusion. that obama care is a mess. are they picking up on it? >> yeah. it reminds me of the catastrophic care act of 1988 which was repealed in 1989, but fortunately unline president bush 41, president obama has the media on his sign. that clip from chris cuomo was a pretty indicative thing. paul bremer at news busters documented a lot more of this. he's got a bodyguard around him. >> alan? >> look, the washingt"washingto has followed obama care. the fact is they've showed maps. this notion that the mainstream media, i.e.
at what's happening funding the government you have obama care changes about to kick in. they are suffering. we found out as you know, steams you about exemptions congress got because of the obama care ruling. you're right. most americans can't take a vacation. most americans are working part time trying to make ends meet. a lot of americans are pushed onto food stamps. to see that type of picture, that's a horrible optic. >> what i don't get. it's hard to get access to the president, hard to get pictures. i post on greta wire, most the president out at the golf course here but they never see him. they are holding someplace. it's hard when the president is having private time with his family or golfing we get pictures. this would have to have been worked out so they could get it. wouldn't you think they would think the last thing he wants is for the american people to see him doing this. of course he's playing golf but to get caught on camera. >> that's what leadership is. when i was a leader, "it was always how do you want your soldiers to see you? you don't want soldie
>>> it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five"." obama care exchanges will open for business two months from today and the administration is scrambling even though the bill was signed into law over 40 months ago. nobody seems to want a part of the bill including people in his own administration. today the head of the irs dedicated to much of the oversight said he doesn't want to participate. >> why are your employees trying to exempt themselves from the law that you are attached to enforce? >> i don't want to speak -- i can speak for myself. i can stay with the current policy i am pleased with rather than going through a change if i don't need to go through a change. >> at the white house carney asked about staffers who don't want to have to live under obama care and are trying to get out of it. >> i think this is something that i would refer you to congress on. we are clearly about the business of implementing the law that congress wrote and passed. >> his own people don't want it like it is cooties. >> these people have the best health care coverage in america, people in ad
that really is affordable and that really will take care of everybody. >> republicans want to repeal obama care, so they go back to a situation where there's no cap, but there will be a cap. >> no way to compromise with these people. we don't want to conciliate with the democrats. we want to beat them. that's what republican voters are telling republicans. >>> so compromise or fight? what is the best strategy for republicans? good evening, sir. >> good evening. how are you doing? >> nice to have you. i know you're not a big fan of obama care. do you think that now is the time to compromise and work out some wrinkles, or is it time now to fight it for you? >> i think it's time for us to continue to fight it, because factually, this policy simply doesn't work. it's too big, 2,000-plus pages. a regulatory environment that may include over 30,000 pages. it's too complicated. you do not get to keep the insurance that you like. you break the intimate relationship between a doctor and a patient. and it's too expensive. it started out $900 billion. in 2009, it went to $1.8 trillion and perhaps eve
thwarted over the last ten years under president bush and under president obama where our intelligence community has saved lives and kept people out of harm's way. there's been a few misses like boston or benghazi where things we should have known or should have done, we made huge mistakes in benghazi when it came to protecting our ambassador and the consulate. but in the grand scheme of things with regard to the things we've been able to do in the intelligence world in stopping threats, it's been very successful. >> so you brought up benghazi. do you think that's why we're so proactive in getting this resolves right now? they could afear to be soft targets to al qaeda operatives. >> i hope it's part of the reason. like i said before, this threat is much more specific than anything we had going into benghazi. benghazi, we should have known because it was the anniversary of 9/11 and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that an embassy in benghazi is the day that the bad guys like to take a pop shot at us. that was a no-brainer and we left our ambassador vulnerable in my opinion. t
. the department of justice when president obama came in, had a respected career u.s. attorney who was put in charge of investigating this, we're here nearly five years later, and the justice department refuses to release that report because it exonerates attorney general gonzalez and the bush white house of any attempt to bring politics to bear on the removal of nine u.s. attorneys for what were good and justifiable reasons. >> if they won't do that when it's an issue involving the previous administration, because they don't want to remove the cloud over attorney general gonzalez over those of us who were accused of being involved in a political effort to remove u.s. attorneys, do you have any confidence at all the attorney general would appoint a special prosecutor that would get to the bottom of this? no, i don't. >> the wrongfulness of failure to release that can't drive us completely. and the problem is, there's so many allegations of political political overtones in this. congressman levin submitted in washington post. but there's so many allegations they claim, that there's the targ
deal. what about the obama administration's big push to paint real problems as phony scandals? >> this administration is the least transparent in history. they're making it very clear that what they said they don't do. they deny, they deceive, they delay. >> whether it's about the attacks in benghazi and the talking points or revelations about conduct at the irs. the attempts to turn this into a scandal have failed. >> this has to stop. this is not a scandal. this is a national security failure where four brave americans died and we're doing nothing to bring the people to justice to understand how it failed. >> all of these scandals, he calls them they're not distraction, they're real. they detract from the reality of what happened to the country on the policies. >> fireworks over obama care because the price tag is going higher. some leading republicans pushing a new effort to fund the law entirely as we get more bad news on how much it will cost. it's hurting the people, the jobs, the 40-hour workweek. there is bipartisan agreement that this isn't working. if we can't fight
law for the surge in part-time workers? brenda, this is another unfortunate example of how obama care will hurt real workers in the real economy. it will lead to lower wage growth, lower economic growth, and more part-time jobs being created as we saw in the most recent job reports at the expense of full-time jobs. welcome to part-time jobs. this is a dismal result. susan, are you convinced? >> no, not at all. there are a couple of ceos who have said they're going to shift to part-time workers but a report that came out, 75% said it would have no impact on their hiring plan. when you see the data you always see a huge uptick in part-time workers. the real problem is we haven't had a real economic recovery like we need to. >> even the irs chief says he doesn't want to change his insurance. a lot of employers must be looking at this and saying why do we need to. >> i'll tell you what, brenda. i'd agree with susan if it was just a couple ceos, but it's not. it's ceos and let's see just off the top of my head, subway, white castle, hardee's, local communications, long beach. the numbers a
. >> we start this hour with a fox news alert. less than two hours away from president obama's first formal solo news conference since april, a look for you in the white house. reporters expected to pepper him with questions about his decision not to meet with russian president vladimar putin and the administration's continued use of the controversial talking point. i am jamie colby. >> and i am greg jarret. >> they are focusing on law makers wasting time and attention on phony scandal instead of the people's work. >> to often over the past two years, washington took its eye off of the ball. they have allowed political postural and phony scandal to distract from our economy and growing middle-class. >> fox news poll find that people do not agree with the president. the interest in the benghazi terrorist attack is anything but phony and not phony to voters, nsa snooping on americans. and the justice department seizing telephone records and irs targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny. host of power play on fox news live. chris, you have written your insightful and provocative
been killed within the last 24 hours. president obama made a statement on the deteriorating situation from martha's vineyard earlier today. >> the united states strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by egypt's interim government and security forces. our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. as a result, this morning, we notified the egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise which was scheduled for next month. i want to be clear that america wants to be a partner in the egyptian people's pursuit of a better future, but our partnership must also advance the principles that we believe in. >> bob, that was president obama earlier today. you worked at the state department. dealt with a lot of different crises over your time there and have watched many. is the president just caught between a rock and a hard place here and did he put himself in this position? >> i don't think he put himself in a position. it is a rock and hard place. interesting thing he
july, 2008. some communication that the irs and fec are having. this predates president obama's november 2008 election. does that signal to you that at least it doesn't go as high as the white house? he wasn't even president then. >> it may. what we do know is there is communication going on that's not appropriate. it's about a question that should be totally dealt with in the internal re new service. that's what most concerns us. if it is referencing something before then, lois lerner worked at the federal elections commission before the irs. maybe she goes -- she's concerned about this. but the point is there is coordination. at least what appears to be coordination between two federal agencies. >> in terms of the response you want, you want the response back by august 21? >> last week, i had a chance in committee to question acting commissioner dan warfall and i said why don't we have all of learn er's e-mails today? it seems the first thing you would have done as commissioner is send us all her e-mails. who's she been talking to? she took the 5th. if you want to, as the pr
we think these people are sitting there eating ho-hos -- >> for the last year and a half the obama administration keep saying things are getter in just a million -- >> it lags. >> how long in, a decade? >> hopefully as soon as we get out of the -- >> help me out here. >> loopholes in the system. the guy in michigan who won the lottery, won $2 million, and all of his money had been tied up in investments so because of that and because his income didn't register properly he was able to access food stamps. so so many people have their satellite tv and big screen tv and high-end amen it ins -- ameants and still accessing wood stamps. >> according to the odd it for, 1% fraud. >> we're very good friends. >> we are. >> where the world is there 1% waste and fraud? >> fraud in terms of people cashing in food stamp benefits for something else. >> a lot more people than that accessing the benefits -- >> there's a lot of people using it as a part of the culture of dough people dense -- dependency. this is supposed to be a temporary fix for people out the trying to get a job, pounding the pavem
a majority of americans can agree on except this. washington stinks. president obama's approval rating plum sed. 82% think the lawmakers deser s deserve to take off the month of august. congress is never popular. washington doesn't rate well on the popularity scale. people tend to personally like their own congressman. the reports we are getting back is that this time it could be different. i wanted to ask you, do you think some of the incumbent are in trouble? >> i talked to democratic campaign committee who handles the house. the average rating of approval for members of the house is about 88% or 89%. 70% now. i think the idea of a safe incumbent -- when i was in the business if you had an incumbent very rare they lose. if a wave hits, if a big issue comes along a lot of people who think they are safe will be in trouble. >> anything we are learning in august 2013 tell us something about what will happen in mid term of november 2014. because president obama's numbers are not good now it's hard to get those back up. and then if you take the fact that most incumbents lose seats from their pa
altogether. obama administration is going to make sure that you have to include people with preexisting conditions, that guaranteed a gigantic increases. it's going fall off the tracks and crash. >> neil: julie, didn't have to be a rocket scientist or dr. kildare to figure out guaranteeing coverage for preexisting conditions or having your kids on the policy until they are 80 or something like that was going to result in higher premiums. so why this shock, this response? >> first, and foremost, to look at this, premiums have been going up at the slowest rate in the past decade. that is one. two, if you live in new york and california, premiums are set to fall by 50% in new york city next year after obamacare goes into effect. >> neil: you honestly believe that? >> wake up. read the "new york times". [ laughter ] >> neil: okay. it's the "new york times." >> cut in half by next year? >> there is no data for that. that is a claim by the obama administration. >> no, it's not. >> they claimed they were going to go down between 2010 and 2012. >> new york has all the conditions that obamacare
is because the checks are in place. >> really? that was president obama reassuring americans that the national security agency was not listening to your phone calls or reading your e-mails. there is a bombshell new report directly challenging those claims and revealing that yes, according to an audit, it was snooping on you and eavesdropping on thousands of conversations. host of power play on fox news.com. chris, look. some of this was unattended and accidental but significant intrusions according to the audit were not accidental and equally disturbing was the effort not to report it and to cover it up. and a further effort to keep the judges and supposed to be supervising this completely in the dark. how troubling for this is president obama? >> big time. he is trying to be flip and he gave the first interview on the tonight show for goodness sake. we don't domestically spy. he waived away the concerns. the situation there is a growing coa ligon the left and right is concerned of the existence of the programs or of the misuse of the programs and what we saw reported in the
to the american people. >> the white house says it's considering whether president obama should meet one on one with president putin at the g 20 summit in russia this year. lawmakers from both political parties want even tougher action than that, more on that part of the story coming up. first to the fox report correspondent jonathan hunt in the "america's newsroom." what is next for edward snowden. >> now is he literally free to move about the country of russia as a refugee as russia has now officially labeled him. is he entitled to government housing, he might also get a hotel room and rent an apartment according to his lawyer who said today, quote: he now is one of the most sought after men in the world. the issue of security is very important to him: snowden himself in a statement thanking the russian government and said over the past 8 weeks we have seen the obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law but in the end, the law is winning. so, for now, harris, edward snowden's home is somewhat ironically a country not exactly known as a paragon of individual libert
party groups were being bad. in 2010, at about the time the irs began this targeting, president obama on at least four occasions specifically suggested that these were front groups for foreign operations. david axlerod, his close consultant, made that allegation directly and so did numerous others. president obama called it a problem to democracy and then upped it to a threat to democracy. when you have your leaders putting that kind of thing out there, when you have senator baucus and senator schumer and senator merkley and senator shaheen and several other democratic senators writing to the irs saying, these groups are dangerous, you need to investigate them. what do you think the irs is going to do? they are people. they see this. they know these are powerful people saying these groups are a threat to democracy. you need to get them. that's the real scandal. not a smoking gun. >> then, you have to take it to the next chapter. now that they have gotten caught with their pants down, now that they have been caught targeting, now, what's the explanation for the leader? what's the cultu
on "fox news sunday" the senator blaming president obama's foreign policy. >> the only american policy that i can think of that president obama is practicing is that, one, he's not bush. second, that the united states is withdrawing. we are withdrawing. and when you do that and when you say that, then things get a lot worse than they are. >> live with the news tonight in washington, steve, the embassy in yemen remains closed. why is that significant? >> well, we don't know if there's an actual threat there or what kind of a threat. we do know yemen's a stronghold of the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. president obama says that branch of al qaeda continues to pose a serious threat to americans. but the president's critics say he's been understating the overall terrorist threat. >> you can't say on the one hand you have destroyed, quote, core al qaeda. by the way, that is semantic gymnastics which is remarkable. you can't say that and at the same time have to close embassies and consulates all over the middle east. look, al qaeda's on the rise. they have been on the rise. they have co
. the obama administration had ordered those closures a week ago after intelligence officials intercepted conversations suggesting possible terror attacks on the facilities and other u.s. interests. yemen, which is highlighted in red here, still remains closed. steve centanni with the very latest live from washington. this is really serious news this week, steve. what's the status? >> reporter: yeah. that's right, jamie. you know that embassy in yes, ma'ayemenis closed because it le heart of the latest terrorist threat. as if to prove the point, terrorists were able to blow up a natural gas facility and kill four soldiers in a port city today about 2 hun miles south of the capital where you see the u.s. embassy here remains closed. now, here at home, lawmakers say the president's understating the danger from al-qaeda after the latest threat forced 22 embassies and consulates to close last week. >> the action of closing these embassies shows they're able to mount threats everywhere in the middle east against the united states of america, and they are playing in ways that can -- that are go

. >> as that dead line of october 1st. it is a starting date for when people sign up for obama care, it seems that americans are getting more nervous about health care. what does the latest polls show on that? clearly americans think in the majority, this law is going to make them poorer and make their health care worse and make the federal government deficit go up and make the health insurance premiums go up. if those who are not in favor of repealing or replacing the law, they think it will be bad for the economy. they can spend money on hiring navigators to seen people up in the law. the law is not working as promised it would. >> oh, boy, perhaps the president will get relaxation on martha's vineyard for the break he's on. thank you for breaking it down. >> disturbing new testimony in the fort hood shooting marshal case. forepzic pathologist taking the sign talking about what they saw four years ago. the army major nidal hasan opened fire on his comraides. >> the prosecution case is winding down. ten or so witnesses left to testify. it is all about the autopsies. horrific, horrific inform
of anger in egypt against the obama administration from both sides. what are they pushing for? >> i'm not surprised 20% is influenced by the brotherhood and islamists. they are angry against the administration because of the political side they had with washington. the bigger concern i have is for the 80% egyptians who consider that the united states endorse the brotherhood and let the brotherhood do what they have done. there could be work in cairo and united states to bring back the friendship that existed before. >> doug: it appears that the entire middle east is a powder keg. what is the tipping point? what is the flash point for broader war? >> the battle of egypt is it. wherever egypt goes, the rest goes. we put pressure on them. and saudi arabia said i will be funding the egyptian government. kuwait. and i am with the egyptian army now. this is a message to washington. be careful. when you side with the muslim brotherhood you could lose half the region. >> doug: a tough balancing act. thank you for your expertise. i appreciate it. good to see you, sir. new revelations leaked

. trying to thread the needle, here is what president obama said? >> it's entirely consistent to say that this tightly organized and relatively centralized al qaeda that attacked us on 9/11 has been broken apart. and is very weak and does not have a lot of operational capacity. and to say we still have these oorge regional organizations like aqap, they can pose a threat. >> aqap of course is al qaeda in. during the last presidential campaign he saw political advantage in telling america that the terror threat had been mittgated and now that he is responsible for protecting the country he admits it has not. >> as though the americans care about the organizational structure of al qaeda, what they care about is whether al qaeda can still kill americans. >> who is ho is there cte? >> the hierarchy of the chain of command is not that interesting to average measures. they want to know if we are still threatened by them and it sounds like of course we are. >> here is some hard facts for you much the state department released some numbers a few weeks ago that showed that al qaeda and the ara
in place, and new details giving us some idea about why so many of our leaders are concerned and obama administration official confirms to fox news intelligence suggests al qaeda affiliates in yemen planned for something, quote, big and spectacular. and a source also telling fox news there's fear about terrorists possibly using surgically implanted bombs around the world. security outside u.s. embassies remaining tight. blast walls, troops, bomb squads being deployed. facilities in countries like yemen and libya. 22 embassies from north africa to east asia were closed today. in the past few hours, the state department telling us 19 of those will stay shut down until end of the week as a precautionary measure. lawmakers reacting to the threat today, including intelligence committee member tom rooney who says intelligence gathered points to a danger like we haven't seen in many years. >> this is much more specific than anything we saw before benghazi or boston. so this is in tune with 9/11/01 with regard to chatter. we have to be diligent. >> steve centanni begins from washington. steve,
. >>eric: so this is on the heels of president obama's big speech on friday on surveillance and what he was going to do in response to ed snowden leaking some information. the president did say they're going to come up with a website to allow more transparency for the n.s.a. and also put together a panel of people to discuss how to be more transparent in the privacy issues. but it seems a little bit too late and too little and i think lonnie snowden, his father, was pointing that out. >>tucker: i don't think that overstatement helps at all for congressman ruppersberger to compare snowden to an al qaeda. it is a bit of a side story. the core story remains the fact that the federal government has the ability and intention in some cases to spy on all 350 million americans. you may think that is a good thing or bad thing but it is worth debating. the idea that we should trust the obama administration, be quiet, that is silly. >>gretchen: the comment from the father of edward snowden was on the heels of president obama saying edward snowden was not a patriot for what he had done. that was th
